Canon's Powershot N cranks out random, quirky spins on your photos

Gallery Photo: Canon's Power Shot N cranks out quirky spins on your photos

Canon’s PowerShot N is a quirky, square point-and-shoot with touchscreen controls and 8x optical zoom lens. The specs aren’t anything crazy, it has a 12-megapixel sensor and a top ISO of 6400, but what sets it apart is something called Creative Shot — you can take a single photo (there’s no shutter button, so you’ll need to tap on the touchscreen), but the Power Shot N will randomly crank out five different spins on it, varying filters, exposure, and crop, to give you something unique every time. At $299.99, it’s hard to recommend it over an iPod Touch and Instagram for a casual user, but if you’re looking for something a little more powerful, the PowerShot N could be worth a look.
